Gujarat Titans cross paths with Chennai Super Kings in the first match of this year's TATA IPL. The stakes are high as Gujarat Titans, the title holders, would look to start on a high, while for Chennai Super Kings, it would be a matter of bouncing back after a dismal campaign last term, which saw them finish in the ninth spot, with just four wins from 14 matches. MS Dhoni will return to action after a while and his CSK will look to put up a tough challenge in front of the home team, which Hardik Pandya will lead.

Gujarat Titans on the other hand, have a pretty much similar team to that of last year, with few changes. Kane Williamson is a good addition to their middle order and the former Sunrisers Hyderabad captain will look to slot it for David Miller, who will miss this match.
